Mexico beat the USMNT in the Rose Bowl Stadium to claim the 2015 CONCACAF Cup and book their tickets to represent North and Central America in the 2017 Confederations Cup and battle for glory against the likes of Germany, Chile, Russia and Australia. The game that defined everything was a really intense and exciting one. The winning goal came until the 118th minute, when Paul Aguilar surprised Brad Guzan with a rocket ball that ended the U.S. hopes. Read More: U.S. and Mexico fans react to El Tri CONCACAF Cup win

In a shocking turn of events, Netherland’s worst nightmare became reality on Tuesday as they failed to qualify to France 2016 following their defeat to Czech Republic and Turkey’s win over Iceland.
